    Maybe she was thinking it was something she would grow into? Very strange gift.

    I didn't mean sugar-free for the OP's little girl, I meant for me! I don't drink coffee, but I am addicted to Diet Coke (or low-joule Cola equivalents)!!

    It's slightly odd (given there are so many more options) but not that inappropriate, especially if she intended it only as mineral water or for adding juice to as a treat. Perhaps a gift for the whole family - you and your DH can both use it too.

    Does it taste anything like Coke Zero? I imagine the syrups to taste like cheap no brand Coke but my dh is also addicted to Diet Coke or Pepsi max so maybe a good present idea in the future?!

    I wouldn't have had a problem at all had the gift been a present for me and hubby. No I don't want one, but we are adults and that's fine.
    A 17 month old likes books, clothes (ok maybe she doesn't like them but it's fitting) and toys or something..
    Even my husband can't understand it at all.
    I guess our main point is she made such a fuss about us giving her ideas and we did and she plainly ignored it.
    That and the gift choice is way off....
